Hi Yall....had to sound southern since I live in Alabama. My Honda trx300 finally died (or cost too much for me to get it fixed this time) and I am in the market for something new and better. One of my grandsons thinks I need a SxS instead of four wheeler. Since I am in my sixties, that is probably a better idea than having to throw my leg across a 4 wheeler.

I have enjoyed the trx300 and like Honda, so I have migrated toward the Pioneer. I have joined the forum to get some good reviews on the Pioneer product and what I should get.

I plan to browse the discussions, but any and all help greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum lakngulf! You've come to a good place to do some research. I too have a trx300 and it is what sold me on the other Honda products I've bought through the years. My 300 is a 94 model and it still runs as good as day one and I've worked it like an ole mule through the years. I wanted a SxS for years and I'm glad I waited to purchase one until now. I haven't put a lot of miles on the one I have but to date but I am well pleased with it's performance. And my grandson love's it when him and I ride around. lol

i drove researched them all. Use mine mainly for Hunting, Fun and Working on ranch. Works great and i really love mine. Compared to Polaris, Viking, Arictic CAt Price value and reliability of Honda and room for 4 people, could not beat it.

Do you associate the reliability to the Pioneer because of Honda's other successful products...atv, etc? How long has Honda offered the Big Red?

I saw a Polaris Ranger 500 last week and was shocked at the footprint of that machine compared to a regular size 4 wheeler. How would the Pioneer compare to the Ranger, size-wise?

A friend of mine has a John Deere Gator XUV 825. I was seriously considering one of those, until I started pricing all the accessories I wanted. Just the doors for the cab cost $2500.00 and everything else was REALLY pricey. I think the Pioneer is a much better value and it's the only side-by-side that doesn't have a belt drive.

Welcome to the group lakngulf.
I am sure after browsing you will make the right decision for your needs. By the way, grandsons love the Pioneer.
We have good friends in your area and love to visit that area as much as possible, lots of great areas to ride.

welcome aboard lakngulf!

The thing that really has me interested in pioneer is that the P4 is no bigger than the P2. Brose some of the other 4 man SxS' and you'll quickly notice they are considerably longer..

They are in Tallassee.
We hope to be back in the area this coming summer or fall. It is a pretty good distance so the visits are not as often as we would like.

Uh Oh

Pioneer Money Diverted

Sad to say that some of the money I had reserved for a SxS, and hopefully a Pioneer, will be diverted to another cause. On last day of hunting season I was headed to the farm in my F150, hit a patch of ice, zip, zip and I was up against the trees. Thankfully, the seat belt and air bags did their job and I was not harmed. Truck was totaled, got check in hand, but will have to put some money with it to get a decent replacement. So, I may be in the market for an inexpensive Honda ATV instead of the Pioneer....bummer.

Lakngulf sorry to hear of your misfortune, but your still sucking air and that's a good thing. See there is a bright side to everything.
